Users that have purchased the HP Envy Spectre XT are facing a long wait for their ultrabooks to be delivered. A HP representative tells CNET that "orders are taking longer to fulfill than HP expected," adding that the company is "contacting all customers who have placed orders to provide updated expected delivery dates."

The company's online store invites users to "customize and buy" the ultrabook, but clicking on that option reveals that orders will not be fulfilled until August 28th at the earliest. For comparison, customers purchasing other "customize and buy" laptops will see their orders delivered on August 14th and HP also has cheaper laptops available for overnight shipping without customization.
